UFC Fight Night: Henderson vs Masvidal Fighter Salaries, Reebok $, Attendance & Gate

 

Fighting in his home country of South Korea for the first time since 2004, Dong Hyun Kim (Stun Gun, not Maestro Dong Hyun Kim who also fought on the card as a welterweight) was the top earner at this weekend’s UFC Fight Night: Henderson vs Masvidal.

Before we go any further, we should note that most international fight commissions don’t release fighter pay info, so none of the following salary data for the event is official.  However, you can get a fairly accurate picture of a fighter’s pay based on official purse info released from past fights (and from future fights – we go back and update these numbers as more info becomes available).  So, based on that info, here is the estimated pay breakdown for the 22 fighters that traded blows at the event (but please remember – this is only an estimate, not official info).
